Conservation is part of a brand new series providing must-read practical guidance to running efficient and successful projects using the new RIBA Plan of Work 2013. Each guide takes a particular angle – in this case the author guides you through working on a conservation project - and explains the essential activities required at each stage.

Concise and easy to use with a consistent format these guides provide the ultimate quick reference support at your desk or on-site. This is an authoritative ‘how to’ full of pragmatic advice, examples and in-text features such as ‘hints and tips’ that illuminate best practice and clever solutions.

Designed to be used on all projects – large and small – and across all types of procurement, they are task rather than role-oriented acknowledging that a variety of people take on these responsibilities. They are also invaluable for architectural students at Part 3 who are getting to grips with the realities of practice.
